The name might be French, but the rooms are decorated in modern Spanish taste with a sleek, fresh look. Following the 2013 renovation, rooms feature walnut wood furniture, white walls, new hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling draperies that accentuate the high ceilings of this late 19th-century building. All-new bathrooms have spacious shower stalls, sink areas with space to lay out toiletries, and bidets. Most rooms hold two twin beds, a small desk, and one or two chairs. The best have small balconies overlooking the plaza, which is busy in the daytime but relatively quiet by evening. If you visit in the spring, request Room 108, which looks out on blooming bitter orange trees. Leave your windows open, and you’ll sleep in the perfume of orange blossoms.
